Normal To 2 Faces

The Normal To 2 Faces command gives the user greater control over the orientation of their model.

Select 2 faces using "Ctrl", then click normal to (or Ctrl + 8 on the keyboard).

Your 1st selection will be displayed normal to you & your 2nd selection will be displayed normal to the vertical.

This tool is extremely useful if your assembly has been imported in a strange orientation or when you are struggling to find a certain view out of the standard tools in a drawing.
